    South Zone beats Central by 7 wickets

    South Zone beats Central Zone by seven wickets and what a fabulous performance this has been from Sai Sudharshan. The Mayank Agarwal-led side has already qualified for the final and will play against East Zone on Thursday and this knock will be a confidence booster for Sudharshan. Not to forget the contribution from Washington Sundar as the Tamil Nadu cricketers seal the deal in style. Sudharshan finishes unbeaten on 132 from 136 balls and Washington scored an unbeaten 43 off 58 balls as South Zone remains the only side to remain unbeaten in this tournament so far.

  • August 01, 2023 20:55
    South Zone 235/3 in 45 Overs

    South Zone needs 27 runs in 30 balls with a well-set Sai Sudharshan at the crease. The opener along with Washington Sundar will look to close out the run chase quickly and carry their bats through.

  • August 01, 2023 20:40
    South Zone 211/3 in 41 Overs

    A brilliant century from Sai Sudharsan as the opener has put South Zone in command with a scintillating knock. Sudharsan along with Washington Sundar forged an unbeaten half-century stand to bring the 200 up for South Zone and the side is cruising towards the target of 262. Sudharsan gets to his century with a single off Karn Sharma and he got to the landmark in just 111 balls. Wonderful knock.

  • August 01, 2023 20:15
    South Zone: 176/3 in 34 Overs

    After 33 overs, South Zone is ahead of Central Zone in terms of runs as the latter was 156 for the loss of three wickets and went on to post 261/9. Sai Sudharsan is nearing his century and has got the support of Washington Sundar at the other end. The run-rate is not an issue as South is going at 5.17 against the required rate of 5.38 and it has still got seven wickets in hand. Central needs to pick wickets to get back into the game.

  • August 01, 2023 19:57
    South Zone 154/3 in 29 Overs

    Karn Sharma gets the breakthrough as he breaks the stand by removing Rohit Rayudu who skipped down the track and tried to play the big shot against the turn but completely missed the ball and got stumped. Rayudu departs for a 48-ball 37. Washington Sundar is the new man in and the southpaw joins Sai Sudharsan, who has been in terrific form this evening. He brings the 150 up for South with a fierce square cut and with a single retains the strike.

  • August 01, 2023 19:31
    South Zone 119/2 in 22 Overs

    Sai Sudharsan hits a brilliant half-century in 56 balls and has anchored the chase for South Zone. The opener along with Rohit Rayudu has stabilised the ship after the fall of Jagadeesan and holds the key in the chase of 262.

  • August 01, 2023 19:01
    South Zone 80/2 in 14 Overs

    Central strikes again and this time Venkatesh Iyer traps N Jagadeesan and that’s a huge wicket. Jagadeesan falls for a 21-ball 19 as the batsman tried to whip the full-length delivery across the stumps but missed it completely and got struck in the crease as the umpire had no hesitation in raising his finger.

  • August 01, 2023 18:41
    South Zone 65/1 in 10 Overs

    Central Zone strikes and it’s Yash Thakur who has provided the breakthrough by removing Rohan Kunnummal who falls for a 27-ball 24 with Sarwate taking a good catch. The half-century stand is broken as N. Jagadeesan makes his way to the middle. A batsman who was unstoppable during the Vijay Hazare Trophy slamming five centuries.

  • August 01, 2023 18:33
    South Zone 52/0 in 8 Overs

    Kunnummal and Sudharsan have forged a half-century stand in 48 deliveries with Kunnummal scoring a run a ball 23 and Sudharsan contributing 26 off 25 deliveries. Six boundaries have been hit so far and a maximum as South is going strong in pursuit of 262.

  • August 01, 2023 18:17
    South Zone 33/0 in 5 Overs

    Kunnummal and Sudharsan have given South Zone a sedate start in the chase of 262. Shivam Mavi is steaming in with an aim to provide an early breakthrough. South skipper Mayank Agarwal is on the sidelines nursing an ankle injury.

  • August 01, 2023 17:47
    South Zone innings underway

    Rohan Kunnumal and Mayank Agarwal open as South Zone look to chase the 262-run target to remain unbeaten in the tournament. Shivam Mavi with the new ball for Central Zone. An injury worry in the first over for Mayank as he clutches his ankle. Physio in to have a look. Looks like the South Zone captain is unable to continue.
